So many exciting foods are hitting supermarket shelves this year! Read all about our "top ate" picks... (Okay, technically, seven, plus a non-edible lineup we're psyched about.)

Yoplait Greek 100 Whips!

One 4-oz. container: 100 calories, 0g fat, 50mg sodium, 15g carbs, 0g fiber, 12g sugars, 9g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

The folks at Yoplait have combined the light and airy texture of their regular Whips! with the protein-packed goodness of Greek yogurt... That rocks. And these come in standard fruit varieties as well as crazy-decadent flavors: Black Cherry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Tropical, Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Vanilla Cupcake. For now, find them exclusively at Walmart; they'll start popping up at other retailers next month, and should be everywhere in the US by March.

More Yoplait Finds: Also look for four new flavors of the traditional Greek 100: Coconut, Honey, Banana Caramel, and Orange Crème. Mmmm...

Top Ate for 2015: Yoplait Greek 100 Whips
Top Ate for 2015: Quaker 3-Minute Steel Cut Oatmeal
Quaker Steel Cut Quick 3-Minute Oats and Oatmeal

1/3 cup/1 packet: 170 - 180 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, 0 - 260mg sodium, 31 - 36g carbs, 3 - 4g fiber, 1 - 12g sugars, 4 - 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*

Fans of steel-cut oats know two things: that the hearty texture of the coarsely chopped oats makes for a satisfying hot cereal, and that they take forever to cook. But what if we told you that you could have steel-cut oatmeal in 3 minutes? Mind blowing, right? Get unflavored oats in scoopable form, or enjoy single-serve packets in two flavors: Blueberries & Cranberries and Brown Sugar & Cinnamon. Look for 'em now, and contemplate what you'll do with that half hour of your day you just got back...

More Quaker Finds: Be on the lookout for Real Medleys SuperGrains, Instant Oatmeal Cups with 50% Less Sugar and No Artificial Sweeteners, and Protein Baked Bars. Way to go, big Q...

Hungry Girl Originals American Grilled Cheese

1 sandwich: 200 calories, 9g fat, 520mg sodium, 21g carbs, 5g fiber, 4g sugars, 11g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

We are TOO excited about the launch of our very first fully branded product. What makes HG Grilled Cheese sandwiches so special? Besides being delicious and having great stats (check out all that fiber and protein), they go from frozen to crispy after just about a minute in the microwave! So convenient, especially for stashing at your workplace, in a dorm room, etc. For now, they're available only at ShopRite, but we hope to have 'em in more stores soon. Click here to download a request form, and ask your local supermarket to carry them. DO IT. There's power in numbers, people...  

Top Ate for 2015: Hungry Girl Originals American Grilled Cheese
Top Ate for 2015: Enlightened The Good-For-You Crisp Roasted Broad Beans
Enlightened The Good-For-You Crisp Roasted Broad Beans

1 oz.: 100 calories, 2.5g fat, 100 - 150mg sodium, 15g carbs, 3g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, 7g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

We've long been obsessed with Enlightened's tasty protein-packed ice cream, and we're equally nuts about the brand's latest product line... roasted broad beans! These bean snacks are perfection in every way -- crispy, crunchy, and addictive. (Good thing they come in 100-calorie packs.) The flavors are crazy good, too: Sea Salt, Wasabi, Sriracha (the best), Garlic & Onion, and Mesquite BBQ. These snacks are super new, but they'll be rolling out nationwide this year...

Cheerios + Ancient Grains

3/4 cup: 110 calories, 2g fat, 105mg sodium, 22g carbs, 2g fiber, 5g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Unconventional grains are officially going mainstream. These hip new Os for 2015 are made with good ol' oats, buzzworthy quinoa, and lesser-known spelt and kamut wheat. Not bad for a brand that's over 70 years old! This cereal will be appearing on shelves this month, so keep an eye out...

Top Ate for 2015: Cheerios + Ancient Grains
Top Ate for 2015: MorningStar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles
MorningStar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles

1/2 cup: 70 calories, 2.5g fat, 280mg sodium, 6g carbs, 2g fiber, <1g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

MF's Chipotle Black Bean Burger is one of the best in the bunch, so we're thrilled the flavor is now available in super-versatile crumble form. Stuff 'em into tacos, add them to egg mugs... in fact, use these in any recipe that calls for ground-beef-style soy crumbles! Now in freezer cases.

More MorningStar Farms Finds: Also exciting? Fellow newbies Garden Veggie Nuggets and Spicy Indian Veggie Burgers. Make some space in your freezer...

Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers

1 meal: 250 - 310 calories, 2.5 - 6g fat, 390 - 580mg sodium, 35 - 41g carbs, 4 - 9g fiber, 3 - 9g sugars, 19 - 22g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6 - 8*

You might feel like there are a billion subcategories of Café Steamers over at Healthy Choice, and let's face it: There are. But these new minimally processed frozen meals sound very yummy and have at least 19g protein each. Choose from Chicken Fried Rice, Chicken Pasta Primavera, Lemon Herb Chicken, and Meatball Marinara. Or just stock your freezer with all four.

More Healthy Choice Finds: Three Café Steamers are now certified gluten-free and are clearly labeled as such. SCORE.
